    I have an Nvidia 6800 Ultra card. Two months ago all mpeg, avi, etc. clips started playing in what I describe as ghostly images. Color is distorted with a gray and white tint. Happens on all saved clips, news clips, entertainment clips, etc. Initially thought my card was going bad but have ran various tests and AquaMark3 with excellent results. I also play games (DOOM3, HalfLife2, etc.) with excellent resolution. I did a clean install of operation system and everything from ground up but still have the same problem. Any suggestions for troubleshooting?
